The Sooners will definitely have a bigger stage.
Oklahoma will make three guaranteed appearances on ESPN’s Big Monday broadcast for the Big 12 Conference, which was rated as the No. 1 conference in the country based on RPI during the regular season. The Sooners are tied for the second-most behind conference leading Kansas, which will appear on the network’s programming schedule four times.
Oklahoma will appear on ESPN on January 5 (at Texas), January 19 (at Kansas) and February 9 (vs. Iowa State). All games times are scheduled for 8 p.m.
Oklahoma finished last season as the No. 2 team in the conference and one of the top-scoring teams in the country. The Sooners earned a No. 5 seed in the NCAA Tournament before being upset by North Dakota State in the first round.
